FIELD OF DREAMS
Friday, July 10, 8:30pm (gates open at the former Marshalls parking lot at 7:45pm)

An Iowa corn farmer, hearing voices, interprets them as a command to build a baseball diamond in his fields; he does, and the 1919 Chicago White Sox come. Staring Kevin Costner, Amy Madigan, James Earl Jones and Ray Liota. Runtime 1hr 47min

Let’s celebrate being out as a community and this classic film on what would have been around the week of the MLB All Star game!

After discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small-town police officer must help him defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments on him. Staring James Marsden, Jim Carrey and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic. Runtime 1hr 39min

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
Newton Community Pride Spotlights Board Member
John Rice

I have created community programming in Newton Highlands since 1997, first as a volunteer and then as Executive Director of the Hyde Community Center and also the Brigham Community House. Being on the Pride Board with all the city-wide community programming was a natural progression for me. 

I served on the Newton City Council for 10 years representing Ward 5. I was chairman of the Programs and Services Committee, which worked regularly with Pride.

I have enjoyed moving from a liaison for the City Council to serving on the Pride Board. Pride is undergoing change and that is good for the organization and for the City of Newton.

Village Bank drives much of the community programming led by Susan Paley. Without Village Bank there would not be the cultural and community enrichment in the City of Newton.

Thank you, John!
